I love to acquire, hoard, stack, shelve, smell, read and share books. I review books. I stare at books. You get it, right?

Thief of Shadows (Maiden Lane)

Thief of Shadows - Elizabeth Hoyt This was STEAMY HOT!!! I fell in love with Winter and felt and understood Isabel's vulnerability. Both characters are awesome. They grow as people and as lovers/friends in the duration of the book. Mrs. Hoyt does a great job helping the reader to understand their views and feelings. The plot was engaging with action, suspense and a wee bit of humor. Also, I enjoyed reading a book that had a male protagonist with strong morals, integrity and values. In most books it's the lady who is unwilling to bend. I recommend this book. It lulled for me about 3/4 in but, it is engaging enough to keep you reading to find out what will happen next.I would like to that Netgalley and Grand Central Publishing for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.
